Date of occurrence: 06/14/2014
Approx time: 2:00 AM
Nearby street intersections: 6th St & Lear St
We were awakened at 2:00 AM by a woman's screams. Two women had just been dropped off by a taxi near their home. And as walking on the sidewalk, one of the women was grabbed around the throat from behind by a male while aggressively yelling profanities at her. He knocked her to the ground and took her purse. When the other woman tried to assist her friend, the man punched her in the eye. As we started yelling at him out the window to leave her alone and that we were calling the police, he ran around the corner onto Lear St just west of 6th St. He then got into a black (or dark-colored) Durango-like SUV, which sped away going east on Lear. The police arrived shortly after and took the report.
Black male, late 20s, approximately 6' tall, average weight --around 200 lbs, short black hair, no facial hair, wearing a grey t-shirt.
Getaway vehicle was black or very dark-colored Dodge Durango (or similar to Durango) SUV.
